DIY Bookmarks.

          As mentioned in my summer bucket list, I have done quite a lot of stuff. In this post, I'm going to share some of the Do-It-Yourself Bookmarks I made. As much as I love reading, I love making bookmarks. It's a different matter that I don't need them as I finish reading good books in a day or two. But, it's a fun activity. I enjoyed making these a lot more than I had imagined. All of these are just paper made. Nothing fancy yet nothing ordinary. I believe that when you make things yourself, they are always special.

These are the simple ones I made for the first time. I did not put much effort as it was just the beginning. I used blue, red and white papers paired with some glitter, markers and ribbons.

In these ones, the technique remains the same but the paper is much better. After all, what's better than hearts?

The next ones I made were just something I hadn't planned. I imagined that the effect of colourful hearts on black would give a nice look. Seven different colours looked really nice. You can make such kinds of bookmarks when you have to gift them to someone. The set looks better than a single.

Now, the last type is the ones which everyone loved. I saw them on Pinterest and that was when I got really interested. These are corner bookmarks. You can attach them on the corner end of your page. There is a lot of variety in these. You can make minions, pokemons, devils and actually anything and it will look amazing. The hearts are another type which is really simple to make. These kinds hold really well and I wonder why anyone doesn't sell such bookmarks!

So I made a total of 21 bookmarks. I spent great amount of quality time making these. Now, I find myself gazing at the bookmark rather than the book. And lastly, I forgot to make one that says, "Go away. I'm reading". How do you make bookmarks? Do share! :)


  1. The corner bookmarks are my favourite! They are so cute and unique!

  2. Thanks! So creative! Anyone should make their own bookmark due to their own creativity and their own preferences :)

  3. I love those cut-out-hearts, and the corner bookmarks too :) Much more inspiring than supermarket receipts!

  4. Those are so cute! I love that little monster one!

  5. These are awesome, maybe if I make myself some I'll be inspired to read more!!

  6. I love the corner bookmarks, I've seen those before but haven't made any myself yet. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I really like those monster bookmarks. I'll have to show the pictures to my daughter later. She loves making bookmarks too.
